About Laurens Poelsma M.D.
Laurens Poelsma is a Dutch physician, and currently working as a general practitioner resident. Due to an inherited disease, Alport Syndrome, he encountered many health obstacles during his medical training. Hardship send him down the lifestyle medicine pathway, and helped him accomplish becoming a (better) doctor.
As sceptic by heart, pragmatist, exercise aficionado and convinced that lifestyle is your medicine, he is in pursuit for a conscientious and durable change in the medical landscapes. As a doctor and advisory board member for the Je Leefstijl Als Medicijn foundation he dedicated himself in finding improved consultation modalities and in making lifestyle medicine the primary therapeutic modality, before all else.
